Yang Qi, class of 2017 
Director of Teaching Affairs Department of Henan Jianye Vocational Education 
    “BHI has helped me change my role from a ‘student’ to a ‘teacher’ and made me truly feel the sanctity and responsibility of this profession. The "cultivating" talent training model, the concept of "combining knowledge with practice, applying knowledge to application", and the core values of BHI "respect, professionalism and responsibility" have played a huge role in my career development.”

Wang Yuxi, Class of 2018
General manager of CHAO Hotel

    “It's been three years since I graduated from BHI. I really miss my time there. Even after graduation, I still remember our school motto of "combining knowledge with practice, applying knowledge to application". The development of the hotel industry in Henan is still at an exploratory stage, so the professional knowledge I learned in BHI has been a great help to my career development now.”
Zhao Haomiao, class of 2017
Director of Marketing Communications, Yurun Hotel Management Group
    “First I would like to express my gratitude to BHI. The teaching method of BHI “combining knowledge with practice” has given me a very good start to my career development. I would like to say to all BHI alumni and students: in work, we not only need to be serious and responsible, but also need to continue learning and face up to difficulties; we need to have clear goals, seize opportunities, because more often choice is greater than effort.”
Zhang Yawu, Class of 2016
Branch Manager of Weishi Heyi Village Bank, Kaifeng, Henan Province 
    “After graduation, we got on separate ways to develop in different industries and fields, but as we have personal experience and in-depth understanding of ‘five-star top service’, I believe BHI students are quite competitive in all walks of life.”

Hu Xuefei, class of 2017
Marketing Director of Beijing Weide Shengkun Technology Co., Ltd. 
    “It’s been four years since I left the campus. Although I always joke that I’m a “drifter in Beijing” for eight years, I never felt lonely, because no matter whether I am in school or not, BHI has done the utmost to care us. Many of my friends I haven’t seen for many years have got rid of their childishness and become more elegant and generous in conversation.”

Dong Boyu, Class of 2020
Private owner of Nanyang International Hotel, Henan Province
    “After stepping out of the campus, the subtle changes brought to us by BHI gradually showed advantages. On our career paths, keep the good habits cultivated in BHI, I believe everyone will be better and better!”

Communication of on-site alumni 






    The carefully arranged venue provided a good communication environment for the alumni. Everyone spoke freely, chatted with friends, discussed with outstanding alumni in different fields, and talked about the possibility of future cooperation. The whole venue was filled with laughter.
